Chocolate Hill at Suvla Bay, Gallipoli, 1915
Photograph by Trooper O Ward, 1st County of London Yeomanry (Middlesex, Duke of Cambridge's Hussars), World War One, Gallipoli (1915).
Although the landing of new Allied divisions at Suvla Bay on 6 August 1915 caught the Turks by surprise, Lieutenant-General Sir Frederick Stopford's men moved inland too slowly and the Turks were able to occupy the heights overlooking their position. The stalemate at Gallipoli continued.
From an album of 124 photographs compiled by Trooper O Ward, 1st County of London Yeomanry, 1915-1916.
